Ice Cream

Steve learned how to make this ice cream in his fifth-grade science class. "I got this recipe from my teacher, Mrs. Mary Heyl, at school, and I make it every other day," he said. His mother, Teri Flatley, said, "He thinks he is getting his milk servings with this recipe."

Tester's note: This is quick and easy to make and kids can easily do it themselves. Each recipe makes a nice serving for one child. My children added their own little toppings and extras, such as chocolate sauce and jimmies, right into the bag. It is easy to clean up -- just toss the bag.

1 gallon-size zip-type plastic bag
1 pint-size zip-type plastic bag
6 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla or other flavored extract

Fill the large bag half full of ice. Add the salt. Seal the bag. Put milk, vanilla, and sugar into the small bag. Seal it. Place the small bag inside the large one and seal again carefully. Shake until mixture is ice cream, about 5 minutes. Wipe off top of small bag. Open carefully and enjoy.

To submit a recipe to Cooking with Kids, please send the recipe, along with the name of the child, a head shot (preferably a school picture), and a telephone number where the child can be contacted to: Cooking with Kids, Kathleen Ganster, 3142 Camberly Drive, Gibsonia, PA 15044. Questions? Call her at 724-443-1664.
